A cross stitch of a quote from Bitterstitch.com (the letters are from Antiquepatternlibrary.org). I'm considering if I should add something more, like a border or something, but I'm not sure.

This is soooo cool. Very neatly done,too Smiley Smiley Smiley
Are you framing it? Then I don't think it needs a border.

Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink

I love it too-- if you mat it, a border would be totally unnecessary.

ha ha, awesome. I agree with, well, everyone else, that a border seems kind of unnecessary if you're going to frame it.

I haven't really decided what to do with it yet, but framing it sounds like a good idea. Maybe that was what I felt was missing.

That is a fantastic presentation of that phrase!  I think it's quite esthetically pleasing w/o the border, but it might be poignant if it had a really complicated and wild border... you know, the physical maifestation of much sublimated rage.

You know-I think that might be cool-especially if you put it on a pillow. You could use it to pound on Wink Wink Cheesy

It's gorgeous!  And my partner still doesn't believe me that sublimate is a real word...

How big is it?
